Virginia Economic Development Partnership
Who is ROI?
ROI was established in 2003 in Montreal, Canada, as a market research firm specialized in lead generation and qualification for economic development and business communities worldwide.
RESEARCH. QUALIFY. CONNECT. This is what we do best.
Our mission best represents what drives us. We are committed to accelerating the growth of communities and businesses through our proven and quality lead generation services.
Our unique, results-driven approach has enabled us to deliver exceptional value to our clients in terms of real investments and new job creation for our economic development and government clients, and increased sales for our corporate clients. We were recognized by Profit Magazine in 2007 as one of Canada’s HOT 50 emerging companies and our President, Steven Jast, was an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist in 2008.
Our dynamic staff of more than 60 people can be found throughout our headquarters in Montreal and our representation offices in Chicago, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Rio de Janeiro. We have also recently expanded our global footprint through our strategic partnership with Washington, D.C.-based public relations firm, APCO Worldwide.

Our clients turn to us to help bring about real, sustainable change to their communities and businesses. And we deliver. We believe what sets us apart is our people, our process and our promise.
